Everton are showing interest in bringing Miguel Almiron to Goodison Park before next Thursday’s deadline. That is according to The Guardian’s Ed Aarons, who claims that Newcastle United will only sanction a permanent exit for the 28-year-old Paraguayan international. Everton are still winless in the Premier League, and it seems Frank Lampard’s side faces the prospect of another frustrating season at Goodison Park. And it is not just troubles on the pitch that have blighted their season thus far.
It has been recently reported that Gordon wants to join Chelsea, who are mounting a fresh bid worth up to £60 million to complete a deal for the Everton academy product. As a result, the Toffees are lining up a few moves to address the areas of need with the incoming cash. They are now eyeing a deal for the Newcastle United playmaker Miguel Almiron to potentially replace Gordon.
Almiron joined Newcastle from MLS side Atlanta United back in 2019, arriving in a £20 million deal, which was a club-record fee at the time. A firm fan favourite at St. James’ Park for his relentless work rate, it is safe to say that the Paraguayan playmaker did not enjoy a great 2021/22 campaign by any stretch of the imagination.
The South American attacker made 32 appearances but only managed to score one goal during the course of the season. Much of his good work at Newcastle has been overshadowed by a lack of end product, with 126 competitive appearances yielding only 15 goals and five assists.
